Audience Reviews for The Sea Hawk

  • Apr 16, 2010
    Great movie starring movie legend Errol Flynn. The Sea Hawk is a fine movie that's well written, beautifully shot, with great acting and some wonderful swashbuckling scenes. The production design was second to none, and the musical score was thrilling. It delivered on most fronts, but the presence of the awesome Flynn sets it apart from anything that followed.

    Saturday morning classic as a kid. Loved it.

    Big time adventure, bigtime fun as we return to Europe in the 1500's. Spain is set to take over the world by dint of her incredible navy ... only Britain stands in her way with a group of seagoing patriots called the Sea Hawks. This rousing Hollywood call-to-arms prepared Yanks for the real war already happening in Europe at the time. The villains are despicable (if well dressed) and numerous, the Queen is brave but broke, and the hero ... the epitome of dashing derring-do.

    Errol is dashing as always and Flora Robson is wonderful as Good Queen Bess, but the absence of Olivia de Havilland, substituted with the vapid Brenda Marshall is sorely apparent. Not bad but should have been a little shorter, tighter and it just cries out for color.
